From the Author
Ever since the publication of my second novel, Always, readers have been asking me what my next project was going to be and when it would come out. When I told them I was working on a story for Nathan Ward, best friend to my hero Michael Thorne in Always, the response was universal: I can't wait! Nathan's character struck a chord with so many readers, which didn't surprise me. Even while I was writing Always, I knew Nathan had to have a story of his own. And I wouldn't have dreamed of pairing him with anyone but his first love who he has never forgotten: Daphne Thorne. Daphne hasn't forgotten Nathan either, but her recollection of the past isn't quite as rosy as Nathan's. In fact, she resists him every step of the way. But Nathan was never one to give up when he really wants something.
For those of you who haven't read Always, never fear. Once and Again is definitely a stand alone book. But I have to warn you--once you read Nathan and Daphne's story, you are going to want to know how it all began . . .

Daphne Thorne, (the sister of Michael Thorne from "Always") is a force to be reckoned with, and had become emotionally unreachable ever since she and Nathan parted 15 years ago. However, when Nathan comes back -- it's on! Smooth as silk and sexy as all get out, he tears down the fortress around Daphne with patience, passion beyond belief and unknowingly, with a lethal weapon named Emily - his infant daughter. The love scenes are hot...especially the ones in the window seat and shower. Have mercy!
"Once and Again" explores what happens when a couple parts without understanding what and why. However, it also demonstrates what determination and drive can do.
Great, great book! I was so sorry to see it end. This is definitely a reread for the future! Much respect, Ms. Savoy.
Needing a place to hide out from the possibility of Monica pursuing a custody battle with him, Nathan finds himself on Daphne's doorsteps asking if he could stay there. Daphne tells him yes for ten thousand dollars.
Dealing with the recent death of her partner Victoria, Daphne finds out that her partner left half of the business to her not so pleasant son Bradley. Bradley intent on making Daphne's life pure hell, tells her she can buy him out for one hundred thousand dollars, money Daphne doesn't readily have available. Alone in her office she remembers Nathan and his need of a place to stay. For the life of Daphne she cannot understand why her apartment. Nathan can buy that place and many more. Against her better judgment she calls Nathan and tells him "yes".
Nathan, arrives with thirty thousand dollars, first month's rent and security deposit. Daphne is stunned.
Daphne decides staying away from Nathan will stop the passion that flows within her, while Nathan has other plans. He has always loved Daphne, and he is not the teen he used to be, and she is the only person who puts fire to his desires.
The characters in this novel are wonderful and they cut right to your heart. I could've slapped Daphne a few times but her jesters were in character. Umm the sex scenes were so hot, I needed to take a cold shower. If you're looking for a hot, steamy love story, don't waste any time getting to your local bookstore, or visit the author's website.
Reviewed by Missy
I strongly recommend to everyone who enjoys the romance novels to read this book. Great character development, the romance is the heart of this story, it has a lot of passion and you feel the real-lifeness of how the author pulls you into the story.
This is one of those books, you just find great difficulty in putting it down, as though you may miss something. It's what we call An All-Nighter type book, one that you can't help but fall in love with both the hero and the heroine.
For some of you who read Dee Savoy's last book, Always, will recognize some of the key players in this book. You get the chance to see Nathan Ward, Daphne Thorne (Michael Thorne's sister) and Jenny. You meet some new characters like Bradley and Sherry. You feel the love of baby Emily and you'll understand the sacrifice of motherly love that Monica leaves.
In summarizing this book, I say it was one awesome story that I actually hated to see it end on page 300. Yeah, folks 300 pages worth of great reading, the kind of story that makes you say, THAT WAS ONE GOOD BOOK!!!!
I met Dee Savoy last year and was very impressed with her loving spirit, saw her again this year and that same spirit still shining with the smile she gives us on the back of her bookcovers. You did outstanding with this book Dee and as usual I look forward to the next DEE SAVOY book that most likely will keep us up ALL NIGHT LONG!
